Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb on Street Photography and the Poetic Image

This is the first release (together with Larry Fink’s) of the new ‘Photography Workshop Series’ edited by Aperture. The series features a selection of the world’s most renowned photographers, who were asked to share their approaches, techniques and insights on photography for the purpose of recreating the workshop experience in a book. Internationally acclaimed for their color photographs, Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris offer their experience and thoughts on seeing and being in the world with a camera. Presenting both their own images and others’, they invite the readers to reflect upon a wide range of practical and philosophical issues, drawing some guidelines to carry out a both structured and intuitive body of work.

Rushville, Indiana, 1956) is a former poet. She published four books of her photographic work, which mainly focuses on the relationship between people and nature.
